Russian Name Days in December

1. December 2011 by Michelle 0 Comments

While most Russian women are looking forward to Christmas parties, there are even more reasons to celebrate this month. Russian Name Days began as a religious tradition to honor saints. Since children were often named after saints, they would enjoy the special celebrations too.


Many countries in Europe and Latin American still celebrate name days, including countries of the Former Soviet Union. Mark your calendars for these December name days and be sure to send some happy wishes their way!
